Gwilym Beechey: A Christmas Album – Six Preludes on Carol Melodies for Organ. Fagus Music £8.00
This collection will be very useful for the village church organist or beginning player who would like to have simple yet effective music for Christmas services. The style is straightforward, with obvious treatments of the melodies: A great and mighty wonder; Past three o'clock; Infant holy; Born in Bethlehem; Behold a tender, gentle maiden; Away in a manger. A number of formats are adopted, though typically the melody is present as a right-hand solo. The score is clear and easy to use.
